There will be more kids wearing what they want which would be harder in enforcing a dress code. By having school uniforms most people will follow it and less people will disobey it. Lastly, parents also like school uniforms. Some parents don’t like the fact on kids dressing how they want, but school uniforms will make the school a better place and keep the parents happy. Studies show that %86 of parents like school uniforms and the parents say it is lighter on their pockets.
Cases such as the one at Dorchester High just goes to prove that having law enforcement present in schools is beneficial and has a positive effect. Yes, there are some cases that officers make a mistake like you see in the news, but maybe we should think twice when judging them. Being a school resource officer is not an easy job and it has many dangers but they want to make sure that students and faculty are safe. Everyday law enforcement officers risk their lives to ensure the safety of others, in school and out of school. Even if having a SRO doesn’t turn crime around immediately in the end there will be some change.
School uniforms could eliminate all competitions, or even the feeling of low self-esteem stemming from the perception that some are more or less inadequate than others. School uniforms could even terminate the hierarchy that over runs schools all together. Though it may seem school uniforms fix problems and are generally regarded as a “good thing”, not all share in the enthusiasm. According to the article, Individuality vs. Conformity: The Issue Behind School Uniforms, there is an argument against school uniforms that states, “...forcing a uniform on students limits the choices they can exercise in this aspect of growing up and rebelling against authority...(Caruso, P. (1996)).” Do uniforms correct faulty behavior or increase the risk of creating it? It seems there is no quick fix to behavioral problems, but school uniforms could offer a chance at eliminating certain behavioral rebellions, angry outbursts, classroom disruptions, etc… Nothing is 100%, not even uniforms are perfect, but they are a step in the right direction for taking behavioral delinquency into control and slowly poke holes through the rugged armor it has acquired.
Many people think that dress codes at school are limiting the children 's freedom of expression and others say that they are very necessary and constitutional. What are the benefits of school uniforms or preventing children from wearing what they want to wear on a daily basis. What evidence do the schools have in order to legally ban the students’ freedom of expression? School dress codes should not be enforced on the children in order to maintain an environment open to diversity. The responsibility remains with the school and the community as a whole to maintain an environment open to diversity and allow the students to confront ideas different from their own.
According to the article, “School Uniforms: Should…”, “Opponents [of dress codes] insist that fashion is an important venue for young people to display their individuality and identity.” Also from “School Uniforms: Should…” Opponents [of dress codes], however, argue that uniforms stifle creativity. Another problem that arises from the lack of individuality is the fact that student are not getting the experience of picking out clothes for school. According to Soraya Chemaly, there are times when dressing more mature is just fine for students, especially girls. (Chemaly 40). Overall if students are allowed to dress themselves and express their own individuality like adults, they will get a better school experience.
Although an innumerable amount of students may disagree, having random locker searches are an exquisite idea. Some parents think that it is an invasion of privacy, other parents feel that it teaches structure. Nobody should be against locker searches, unless they have something to ensconce. The first reason why a multifold of students would like random locker searches to be implemented into their school policy. A multitudinous number of students desire random searches to be performed, because many of them conclude that it would make their school feel exceptionally safer.
Other pros of the honor code is it actually works in some cases. It gives students a feeling that they are trusted and cant let their professor down. The students as well have the peer pressure of their fellow students into doing the right thing. So if the majority of students respect the honor code, the rest will follow. In Source F it backs up my view with this statement “Unlike the majority of colleges where proctoring of tests and exams is the responsibility of the faculty and/or administration, many schools with academic honor codes allow students to take their exams without proctors present, relying on peer monitoring to control cheating.
My school would greatly benefit from the application of an honor code as long as such a code is approved by the student body. Such an honor code would bring about students to reconsider their actions before cheating on a test. This is because an honor code has the ability to create a culture among students which discourages cheating. Also, including harsh punishments within the honor code would dishearten students from cheating out of fear of potential consequences. Schools which have not benefited from honor codes are very different from Classical, and therefore do not prove that an honor code would be ineffective at Classical.
Blue Valley should adapt a school uniform policy for many reasons. One of them being it prevents distraction and evens out the social status between students. The second reason is that studies have showed that attendance and test scores have improved when uniform policy is implemented. The last reason is that it has stopped most crime and bullying in schools. This is why Blue Valley schools should adapt a school uniform policy.
Wearing uniforms is a debated topic talked about all over America, even across the entire world. I strongly agree that uniforms should be worn because it decreases the chances of bullying and creates a badge of pride and gives an identity for the school. Kids wearing their own clothes could cause more children to be bullied by others.Some kids might not even have clean wearable clothes, they could be torn or have holes in the fabric. The bullying could cause depression and in some extreme cases have lives be lost. When you send your child to school you want them to be in a safe learning environment and never want be in harm 's way, right?
